Paulina Porizkova is opening up about the death of her estranged husband, Ric Ocasek of The Cars.

After Ric died of heart disease in 2019, it was revealed that the model – who was still living with Ric despite their separation in 2017 after 30 years of marriage – was cut out of his will.

“It made the grieving process really, really tricky. I would love to be able to be sad and miss him and not also feel this incredible hurt and betrayal,” she said during her CBS Sunday Morning, which aired on Sunday (March 1).

“Even if I should die before our divorce is final…Paulina is not entitled to any elective share…because she has abandoned me,” he wrote in his revised version of his will just before his death, according to Deadline.

In addition to three decades of marriage, the two also share two sons together.

She plans to contest the will to receive a portion of the estate, which is worth a reported $5 million in assets, unless it can be proven that she did in fact abandon him.

See how the couple announced their separation back in 2018.
